I was lucky enough to be at the edgy and educational Beat Live conference held in Chicago in September where Amadeus was named most admired technology provider in the 2010 Readers’ Choice Awards for The Beat.
For those who don’t know it, The Beat is a fantastic travel business newsletter, which covers both business travel distribution and technology. Over 6,000 people from more than 250 companies – many of whom are corporate travel buyers or travel management company personnel – worldwide get the inside track on what’s happening in the business travel arena from The Beat.
Jay Campbell, founder of The Beat, spoke of how gratifying it is to know that the readers’ choice awards are based on the opinions of key executives and participants in corporate travel management and travel distribution.
I’m proud that Amadeus is admired by The Beat readers for our policies, management style and service for business clients. Amadeus has always been committed to being a technology partner to the travel industry and this recognition by The Beat‘s knowledgeable travel and technology audience is a testament to that.
Being recognised by The Beat readers is a tremendous honour and milestone for Amadeus – and reinforces the brand perception and recognition of Amadeus as a leading technology provider in the North American market.
